As of Friday, October 5, Johnson Controls has completed its release of the FX Supervisory Controller Family Software update 14.6. Made available for download on the HVAC Navigator back in September, the DVD shipment is now officially released.
New for 14.6 are the following:
- Auto export function: Export key station information to a file that is used to populate the Johnson Controls Appliance Project File.
